Best hotel/motel chain in the US

Jump to last reply

Am interested in your opinion on what you think is the consistently best hotel/motel chain in the US. I guess I should define "best." What I mean is "best value." Obviously, if you pay $500/nt to stay at a Waldorf, you expect more than what you get at a Motel 6. But which one is, dollar for dollar, the best value?

I realize that quality can vary greatly from one place to another (and someone in the industry once explained why to me), even under the same name. But which chain do you think is consistently the best?

My nominee: Fairfield. I started using them a lot for stopovers on long trips because I'm a Marriott points member. I've been impressed with their staffs, breakfasts, and overall good condition of their hotels -- often for prices in the range of $75-$85. Hampton Inn is pretty good, too, for a slightly higher price.
